Kamala Harris is being criticized for sharing a story about her childhood that very closely resembles a story told by Doctor Martin Luther King Jr., according to the BizPac Review.

“Senator Kamala Harris started her life’s work young,” Ashley C. Ford began.

“She laughs from her gut, the way you would with family, as she remembers being wheeled through an Oakland, California, civil rights march in a stroller with no straps with her parents and her uncle.”

“At some point, she fell from the stroller … and the adults caught up in the rapture of protest, just kept on marching. By the time they noticed little Kamala was gone and doubled back, she was understandably upset,” Ford continued as Harris picked up the storyline.

“My mother tells the story about how I’m fussing,” the Democrat told the magazine. “And she’s like, ‘Baby, what do you want? What do you need?’ And I just looked at her and I said, ‘Fweedom.’”

“I will never forget a moment in Birmingham when a White policeman accosted a little Negro girl, seven or eight years old, who was walking in a demonstration with her mother,” King said in that interview.

“‘What do you want?’ the policeman asked her gruffly, and the little girl looked at him straight in the eye and answered, ‘Fee-dom.’ She couldn’t even pronounce it, but she knew. It was beautiful! Many times when I have been in sorely trying situations, the memory of that little one has come into my mind, and has buoyed me.”
